Snobbish, scatty, ill-informed, inconsistent and not as funny (or clever) as we think we are, Mild Concern is a UK-based website celebrating film, TV and the arts. This site is maintained and updated by life long fans of film, TV and the rest.
If you need to get in touch for any reason – to contribute, invite us to an exciting event, or want to whisk us away from this dreary life – contact details are on the right. NOTE: We will not consider advertising offers from any brands that could be considered gambling or offer payday loans.
Meet the Team
Films and TV have always been a treat for Tim, rooted in the days when there was nothing better than staying up late on a Friday night for uncut Buffy on the BBC, or pushing back bedtime with his dad to watch classic Hitchcock or vintage horrors such as Island of Terror. After a scientific detour at University, Tim is celebrating his love for audio-visual storytelling by editing Mild Concern. Just don’t ask him to explain the name.
Mild Concern was designed to combat everything rotten in the world of film sites: regurgitated press releases and lists spread over 50 different pages. With a deluded belief in the so-called “Brandon Bump”, Tim credits himself with launching the career of Zooey Deschanel and now won’t shut up about Felicity Jones. When backed into a corner he will rant at you about James Cameron and then insist that you watch Brick; the two are not related. Tim has not seen
The Godfather The Shawshank Redemption, but has seen both Bridget Jones films. Go figure.
Although currently putting things on the web for a living, it was Kat’s student job in a multiplex cinema – and with it a lot of free tickets – that ignited her love for film. This persisted despite being made to watch Two Weeks Notice, a romantic comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant that nobody remembers, twice in one week.
At Mild Concern, she spends the vast proportion of her time randomly deleting or adding punctuation in her fellow writers’ work and humouring Tim by accompanying him to mediocre films starring Felicity Jones. She is convinced that one day she will have to stage an intervention. Sometimes she writes overly-long rants about personal bug bears in film and television that she later wishes she had toned down.
She’s an absolute sucker for any film involving a British individual/group overcoming the odds in an unlikely way to succeed, in the manner of Brassed Off, Billy Elliot and Made in Dagenham. The three films Kat most regrets paying good money to see are Unfaithful, The [Nicholas Cage remake] Wicker Man and Vanilla Sky.
